    Default Demo video of Youtubes 'stabilise' option - it's really rather good

    Not posted this for critique of the video content or production but couldn't find a suitable home for it.

    I'd heard Youtube had added a Stabilise option to it's video editing section but didn't think it would compete with the filters I use in standard video editing software ... but I gave it a go ... and it's actually BETTER and much, much quicker.

    I chose to try it on the most demanding of videos, an onboard Kart video. They are very stiffly sprung and the track was very bumpy. The source video was almost unwatchable.

    Anywway here is the demo video which shows side-by-side, one after the other and 'transparent' merge of the before and after video.

    I have since found out that the reason it's so good is that Google bought 'Green Parrot Pictures' last year who developed professional enhancement filters, including a very good stabiliser.


    PS. Please feel free to move to a more appropriate forum

    Even if you don't wish to upload your video to youtube, or want to upload elsewhere you can upload to Youtube as unlisted (so no-one can find it), apply the stabilise function and download with one of the many free Youtube download programs (I use Free Youtube Downloader from DVDVideosoft) - thats how I create the above video.

    You then have your stabilised footage and can then delete from Youtube.


    (To see the sort of stuff I normally do (onboard multi-cam motorsport videos, check out my channel)
